The Kona Sutra Ltd makes Bike Packing’s Gear of the Year

The nice folks over at BikePacking.com have posted up there 2017 Bike Packing Gear of The Year Awards and the Kona Sutra LTD made the shortlist for the Top 5 Bike Packing Bikes. This is what they had this to say.

“While the Kona Sutra LTD we are testing is, in fact, the 2018 model, it’s been available for a few months now, and it’s impressed us enough to make a top five spot. The Sutra LTD is without a doubt a drop-bar bike built for off-road adventure. In addition to its ability to clear 29×2.1” tires, and a smorgasbord of bottle and rack mounts, its almost unmatched in the mainstream bike market for its mountain-bike like character. Read the press release here and stay tuned for a detailed review.”
